Soak the slide in acetone for 10-15 minutes; it turns to something that
looks like a slice of Jell-O and slithers down the slide, leaving cells
and stain and structure in perfect order.  I usually dip the slide in
xylene a couple times to clear the acetone and re-coverslip it.  Works
like a charm.  LOVE the coverslipping tape!


I'm down to 20 days until I retire!  Not that I'm counting or
